Lockheed wins option to continue managing ISS cargo

Cementing Cargo Into Place For the ISS Is Lockheed Martin’s Charter.

Currently, Lockheed Martin maintains more than three million items destined for the station. The team exports and ships about 25,000 pounds of cargo to launch locations around the world annually, including the United States, Russia, Kazakhstan and Japan. The company also processes flight crew equipment, which includes buying, maintaining and preparing items for the ISS crew such as clothing, housekeeping and personal care items, laptop computers and audio-visual equipment.
